wig and earrings (Posted 18th October 2012)

this is a yuna wig from ebay, i dont need to do anything to it as it seems to be the perfect style already

san fur cape (Posted 30th September 2012)

finished furry cape! with added tail, all hand sewn

shaw (Posted 30th September 2012)

i made the necklace and shaw as one piece using a stiff piece of wire. i then put my beads and teeth i made on the wire and them attached and hand stiched the fur shaw on.

heads (Posted 30th September 2012)

i forgot to say that i glued a strechy piece on black fabric on the inside of the mask to hide the horrible plaster and to make the eye holes backed out, the fabric is streched enough so that i can see through the fabric.

mask progress (Posted 30th September 2012)

fur glued on. :D

adding the ears (Posted 30th September 2012)

i put screws though the mask and ears to hold them on tight. i then put a little bit of foam to fill the gap.

shoes complete (Posted 28th September 2012)

finished! re covered a old pair of boots with the japanese linen.

earrings (Posted 28th September 2012)

just painted some cheap ones white.

ears progress (Posted 28th September 2012)

ive filled the gaps in the ears with poly filler, once dry ill sand it down and then paint

necklace (Posted 28th September 2012)

i made the teeth from fimo, just need to make the rest of the necklace

dress complete (Posted 28th September 2012)

made and finished the dress and tunic pretty quickly, i made the pattern up myself and quickly put it through the machine. i did not hem the dress as i want it to fray. the dress is made from dark purple suede and the tunic is made from japanese linen.

ears progress (Posted 24th September 2012)

just wrapped some plaster stripes around some foam for the ears

san's mask (Posted 24th September 2012)

nearly complete, i need to add the ears and fur

mask progress (Posted 23rd September 2012)

i covered the mask in polyfiller and rubbed it down so it was smoother and then started to paint it

mask progress (Posted 18th September 2012)

i built up the pattern with more plaster strips, once dry i will coat in something to make it smooth

mask progress (Posted 18th September 2012)

drawing out the pattern, and cut out eye holes

mask progress (Posted 14th September 2012)

ive started san's mask, im making it out of modroc, i had some left over in my box of bits. :)

san's shoes (Posted 14th September 2012)

i just patterned some fabric around my old pixie boots, ive got some japanese linen to cover the boots with.

finally started (Posted 1st September 2012)

purple suede dress pattern made today and fabric cut, tomorrow ill put it through the sewing machine, im thinking that i wont hem it as it wont fray too much but it will look more like san's dress with rough edges.
